19/12/17 OLD PULTENEY 25YO AND 1983
OLD PULTENEY 25YO
The Highland distillery, based at Wick in the far north of Scotland, matured the new 25-year-old expression in ex-Bourbon American oak barrels for 22 years, followed by three years in ex-oloroso Spanish oak butts.
Bottled at 46% abv, Old Pulteney 25 Year Old is described as having ‘mature and fragrant flavour notes’, with ‘heavy spices and dark chocolate… rum-soaked raisins and lime honey, punctuated with clean notes of orange peel and baked apples’.
‘We’re extremely proud to launch this premium addition to our core range,’ said Karen Walker, marketing director at International Beverage, owner of Old Pulteney parent company Inver House Distillers.
‘As one of the finest single malt whiskies in the world, it embodies Wick’s spirit of endurance and the Pulteney distillery’s signature coastal style.’
OLD PULTENEY 1983
Old Pulteney 1983 Vintage was matured in ex-Bourbon American oak barrels, before an extra spell in ex-oloroso Spanish oak butts, with ‘a chocolatey aroma with undertones of stewed fruit and toffee’.

Using neither a compass nor a ruler, this Aberlour has successfully squared a circle. That is to say, it has successfully risen to the challenge set - to be completely under the spell of the sherry without this ever overburdening the palette of flavours and aromas. To achieve this feat, it draws on a spirit that boasts rare minerality. The way the palate matches the nose and the finish naturally presents its arguments, are in this respect enlightening.
Profile: the distinguished initial nose is slightly tarry and very mineral. It develops into incense, heady florals and citrus fruit. The palate is like chewing on a liquorice stick. With generous flavours, it reveals chocolate, rancio and herbaceous notes. The very natural finish is even more concentrated. Characterised by coffee and tobacco, it is extremely fruity (bramble, blackcurrant).
